Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is demanding that Georgia’s Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis resign over her inappropriate relationship with fellow get-Trump prosecutor Nathan Wade.
Willis has been accused of hiring her lover Wade to help with her politically motivated case against President Donald Trump, despite his lack of experience.
Both anti-Trump prosecutors have been accused of abusing taxpayer funds to pay for expenses related to their relationship, such as dinners and luxury trips.
In a Friday court filing, Willis admitted to a relationship with Wade, whom she appointed to prosecute Trump.
However, she denied the relationship interfered in the case.
Until Friday, Willis had neither confirmed the affair nor denied the impact of the relationship on the case.
Speaking during an interview with Breitbart, Georgia Congresswoman Greene blasted the Fulton County DA’s office over the scandal.
“Absolutely, she should step down,” Greene said.
“She should be absolutely ashamed of herself.”
Trump and codefendant Mike Roman have accused Willis and Wade of corruption for:
- Maintaining an improper romantic relationship
- Enriching themselves through the taxpayer-funded prosecution
- Meeting with Biden administration officials before indicting Trump and codefendants
“There’s so much evidence coming out,” Greene said.
“I would love to see a criminal investigation.
“That’s what should be happening here, in the state of Georgia, against Fani Willis.
“That’s why I called for Gov. Kemp and Attorney General Chris Carr to launch a criminal investigation.”
Georgia’s Republican Gov. Brian Kemp refused to launch a criminal investigation into Willis, however.
In January, Kemp argued that the probe should move through a House committee, which the Georgia State House has since launched.
There is also a Georgia State Senate probe into Willis and a congressional probe led by Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH).
Greene said any investigation into Willis should focus on her affair with Wade due to a conflict of interest.
Wade had a sexual relationship with Willis to win a contract from Fulton County to help Willis prosecute Trump, Greene explained.
Trump and his codefendants allege that Willis benefited from the high-profile prosecution.
“You had Nathan Wade having sex with Willis to get a contract with Fulton County and be hired as a prosecutor, so he never registered as a lobbyist,” Greene said.
“He never filed any of that paperwork.
“I filed an ethics violation against him because Willis admitted that they have a relationship that should move the investigation against Nathan Wade to a different level.”
Willis is up for re-election in 2024, giving county voters the power to remove her from office following allegations of corruption.
Greene said Willis could lose her re-election just as former Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms lost her re-election in 2022.
The congresswoman said she’s confident that there are enough patriots in Fulton Count to rise up and make a difference.
“Don’t count them out,” Greene said of Fulton County voters.
“They got fed up with Keisha Lance Bottoms, the former mayor, sick of her, and you want to know why they got sick of her?” Greene asked.
“They got sick and tired of her because she was against the police.
“And she was allowing this is back in 2020.”
